In Talk Spas’ “Spa Fit for a Sultan” series, we profile the most luxurious and lavish spas in the world.
If you’re a man and you’ve never been to a spa that is dedicated exclusively to the pampering and grooming of men, then you’re missing out. If you make the decision to go to one, perhaps you should consider Nickel NYC Men’s Spa & Salon. A relaxed masculine environment well versed in the spa arts, you couldn’t hope to receive better care and treatment anywhere else.
Situated in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York, Nickel was founded in 1996 when it dawned on the owners that men needed their own spa in which to retreat and rejuvenate. At the time, masculine beauty was somewhat uncharted territory and the opening of Nickel was rather groundbreaking. Nickel created a comfortable environment for men and helped make it socially acceptable for them to treat themselves to facials, massages, manicures, pedicures and host of other pampering services. Furthermore, they made it so that a trip to the spa was as easy as a trip to the barber. Nickel also pioneered a men’s, no nonsense, high performance skincare range, often marketed with a sense of funkiness and whimsy; for example, their famed Morning After Rescue Gel was sold as the ultimate hangover product to restore beauty to the hair. Today, their products can be found on Amazon and in stores all over the world. Nickel’s hair salon offers men a full service experience including cut, color, highlight and free touch ups within two weeks of a hair cut. Nickel’s spa offers the ultimate range of treatments for men. Specialty massages include: the Destress Muscle Release, a deeply restorative treatment specifically designed for tight, stressed and aching muscles, which incorporates Swedish and cross muscle fiber massage techniques (60 minutes – $115); the Jet-Lag Treatment, an enlivening and rejuvenating massage using physical manipulation to transport you quickly into the right time zone and get your body back in business (60 minutes – $110); and the Aromatherapy Experience, combining the power of pure essential oils with a specialized massage drawn from the traditions of both East and West, concentrating on the back, scalp, face, neck, shoulders and feet (60 minutes – $110). Nickel addresses men’s unique skin care needs with treatments including: the Complete Facial, which deeply cleanses and exfoliates your specific skin type (60 minutes – $110 ); the Super Moisturizing Facial, designed for skin experiencing a pre-mature aged look from sun exposure, city pollution, poor diet or even from a little too much partying (60 minutes – $115); and the Touch of Youth Facial, a complete facial plus 50% more treatments that include an anti-aging mask to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (90 minutes – $130). Nickel also offers men a full range of “man-scaping” services including waxing and body trim.
Undoubtedly, Nickel is one of the very best spas in the United States for men. Additionally, Nickel has spas in Paris, on Rue Francs Bourgeois, and in London’s Covent Garden. For those of you men who want to up the level of care you provide yourself, you can hardly go wrong with Nickel.
